If it's for you, and you don't care that you went over it, then it's fine. When I was 10, I received a Lindros signature in blue pen on my jersey at Ovations in the old Spectrum. I went home and went over it in black sharpie (to my family's shock). I no longer considered the jersey anything special -- I started to realize its value was worthless to anyone else, although the story and memory of getting it signed are what I consider most valuable.
Worst part is that I had a brand new silver Decocolor marker that I handed to the girl but she handed the jersey to Giroux first and he signed with the Sharpie before she handed him the Decocolor marker. I got it from her and got him to sign the stick with it though... came out nice.
